Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son. Genesis 18:14
There is nothing too hard for God? Right? Then why is it when we come against adversity or situations happened that are beyond our control that sometimes cause us to buckle? We can say it’s because we are human. But this one thing we do know is that God knows how to get our attention and remind us in His Word or in a small quiet voice to say He is aware of the situation and there is nothing so difficult that He cannot do!
When three men appeared to Abraham on their way to Sodom, he told Abraham that this time next year Sarah will have a son. Sarah was in the tent and she heard what he said and laughed. Why? Because She and Abraham were very old. When she did give birth to her son, she was 90 years old and Abraham was 100. Sarah looked at herself and all she could see was how old she was and she was way past child-bearing. She looked at her husband and saw that he was an old man. Is not how we look at our situations? We see all the negatives of the situation and think how could any good come out of this because I lost my home, I lost my job, my children are out of control, or maybe in jail, my spouse has left me, I am all alone, I’m not smart, I don’t have enough education, I have too many bills and the economy is so bad and there’s no way I can get out of this situation, I am sick, cancer is all through my body, and the list goes on.
God heard her laugh and He said to Sarah, “Is any thing too hard for the Lord?” Sarah quickly denied that she laughed because she was afraid. Why? God heard her and He called her on it. Well, God heard us too and he is calling us on it. God is omnipresent, which is present in all places at all times and He is omniscient which is having infinite awareness and understanding. He sees all and He knows all of our thoughts. He is aware of our weaknesses and how we may falter in our faith. And He still loves us and continues to build up our faith. Is any thing too hard for the Lord?
